Response to Lithium Response



The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and national restrictions in the participating countries impact the R-LiNK project. Indeed, several activities cannot be performed in this context. The sponsor (Assistance Publique – Hôpitaux de Paris, France) and the coordinator decided to define a specific procedure for the inclusion of a patient during this period (contact with the coordinator and the sponsor before inclusion). This procedure is in place until further notice. All activities that are not disturbed by the COVID-19 pandemic can continue without limitation. We hope to be able to resume the recruitment again as soon as possible. Take care of you and your beloved.
